Firmament is an all-new, enigmatic narrative adventure, representing the next step in Cyan’s evolution. It’s being developed for Windows and VR on Unreal 4, and stays true to the storytelling, artistic integrity, and inventive puzzles that Cyan holds dear.

A gasp for air… a release of chilled breath… the crackling sounds of melting ice.

You wake in a glacial cavern — perfused by blue. It’s crowded with metal pipes and adorned with curious, clockwork gears.

Echoing machinery resonates in your ears as a massive metal door opens before you…

As you enter a dark chamber, warm lights flicker to life, revealing a frigid, yet intimate stone interior, supported by riveted iron beams. In the middle of this room is an ancient table – a tea cup on one end and a frozen body slumped over the other. The corpse’s hands hold an exquisite clockwork device — held out like an offering.

You reach for the device, and suddenly… a small whir… a blue glow is birthed from its core as it comes to life and lifts from the outstretched palms of the rigid stranger. It hovers above you, watching.

An apparition appears with a message from the woman that left this gift. She planned to mentor you…

…but something has gone terribly wrong.

An immense, unexpected adventure now lies ahead…

You won’t be alone on this journey. You’ll be accompanied by a “clockwork adjunct” who will offer assistance and companionship. The two of you will communicate exclusively via hand gestures.

Cyan is looking to raise at least $1,265,000 on Kickstarter by April 26, 2019. No launch date has been established.

Firmament is being developed for Windows and VR (Oculus and Vive). Mac will not be supported.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
